Allergies Relieved Fast with Acupuncture

Enjoy Spring without the allergies with acupuncture!

It’s Spring! It’s also time for seasonal allergies. Acupuncture can help.

If you are suffering from allergies, you are definitely not alone.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, about 26 million Americans endure chronic seasonal allergies, while the amount of people with milder symptoms may be as high as 40 million.

An allergy is an immune system disorder that occurs when your body has an inflammatory, hypertensive reaction to what is a normally benign substance, like pollen. Common conditions such as hay fever, eczema, hives and asthma are actually allergic reactions.

Most symptoms appear within 5 or 10 minutes of exposure to the allergens and usually include sneezing, dry and unproductive coughing, wheezing, itchy sensations on the roof of the mouth or at the back of the throat, swollen sinuses leading to a stuffy nose and headaches, a runny nose, itching, watery and reddened eyes, reduced sense of smell and taste, and disturbed sleep. That can certainly make it hard to concentrate and perform daily tasks, especially at work or school.

Most treatments aim to reduce the discomfort of the symptoms temporarily, and they often come with negative side effects.

Safe, Effective Treatment of Spring Allergies

Most over-the counter drugs treatments aim to reduce the discomfort of the symptoms temporarily, and they often come with negative side effects. But not acupuncture. Acupuncture treats allergies safely and effectively with no side effects. It is one of the major holistic therapies used for thousands of years to address the underlying energetic relationships in the body that makes those allergic reactions happen.

Acupuncture treatments can give immediate relief from the symptoms, and further, they can address the variety of underlying causes. With acupuncture treatments allergy symptoms will ultimately stop, and the reactiveness will calm down.

Try acupuncture! Enjoy life without allergies and have a happy and healthy Spring!

Here are some additional steps you can take to help manage your allergy symptoms:

  • Identify dusty or moldy areas in your home (basements, attics, and air vents) and do a thorough Spring Cleaning.
  • Minimize exposure to pollen by choosing indoor activities.
  • Be sure to close your windows and doors.
  • After outdoor activities, take a shower to rinse off the pollen.
